Great book -- I've had it since August 17, 1976. This is the original Hitchhiker's Guide to Europe and North Africa. Ed Buryn is now married to Mary K. Greer, of tarot fame.

Not a "Travel" book but a "How to Travel" book, July 25, 2001
Reviewer: "dave-s" (Costa Mesa, CA United States)

This wonderful book reveals the secret of how to be a good traveler. "Vagabonding" is the right word. And you don't have to be a low-budget traveler to vagabond. It's a way of thinking, a way of looking and hearing, and a way of being.
I read the book in 1972. Ed Buryn put my head in the right place to make my 9 month trip in Europe and North Africa, (of all places), an extremely enjoyable experience. I went alone but constantly met up with others who I traveled with for a day or months.

Today I do a lot of business travel. But even though its nice restaurants and first class hotels there are still the hassles - long days on the road, not sleeping well, changes in schedule. It's times like those that I use the wisdom brought out in this book. It should be required reading for "Life 101".
